The event will be an excellent opportunity for some of Canada’s veterans to play along side athletes from our Development and Youth Squads.  This will be the first taste of international competition for several of the players. This Welsh invitational event will provide a tremendous development opportunity for these up and coming athletes as they move along our player development pathway. Along with Wales, the Canadians will face the likes of Australia, Ireland, Malaysia, South Africa, and USA.
